Week 8

So this week was pretty dang regular except for the fact that we bought ourselves our apartment. My first ever own apartment and actually Johan's too. You can only imagine our excitement! (hint we're ecstatic!) A place all of our own, which we can fix, paint, renovate however we please, and pick out our very own furniture for. Surely feeling awfully grown up; it's a great feeling by the way.

I've never really had my own place before. I lived at home with my parents throughout college and even for a year after that. When I moved to Sweden I lived with my Aunt and Uncle, and then in my cousin's apartment. When Johan and I moved in together, we lived in numerous furnished apartments of friends and friends of friends. We haven't had to purchase much furniture, and kind of just adapted to however the apartment was set up. Only in this last apartment have we gotten a feel for what it would be like to have our own place, as we've been able to live here a while longer, and have added a lot of our own touches. But the majority of the furniture here is not ours. Now if only the end of May would come sooner, so that it could be moving day.

The week will also finish off on another great note as it's my birthday tomorrow. 29 gah! How on Earth did I ever get this old?! I plan on not doing anything particularly exciting, no parties or anything like that. Maybe just a quick visit to town, to look for a new dress or two, and I plan on enjoying a huge delicious crab dinner. Sounds perfect to me.

Have a great weekend!

p.s. Please excuse the really boring photo of the realtors office. We don't have any photos of the apartment as of yet. Going to rectify that on Sunday :)
